    I believe that you need a home replacement application to allow this.

    The home screen, by default will not auto-rotate with orientation.

    You can make any of the home replacement apps (openhome, dxtop, etc...) look exactly like your current home screen and I believe those will allow the home screen to autorotate.

    I wouldn't like my home screen to rotate via orientation.

    Hasn't been an option since 1.1 so I am not surprised its missing (or left out).

    PandaHome is free AND it's pretty good. No lag runs excellent. Homescreen rotates with out keyboard being deployed.

    I really like Panda Home

    Only problem with that was I couldn't find a "stock" Droid skin... I've hated everything else I've tried
